Celebrating My Independence

Coins | Pliny The Elder

We have gone through another year here in the United States, and everywhere else for that matter.  This Independence Day  morning I am thinking about our country, but I am also reflecting upon a coin collecting hobby in flux, both politically and socially.  Just like is happening in the United States of America.  I did something different this holiday weekend and I went crabbing.  Happy Independence Day.  Remember the soldiers, so many who are not with us this day.   The coin is a German token showing a card player, a favorite pastime of many soldiers.  The fat guy on the fishing boat is me.
